The report reviews the history of cement stabilisation. It continues by discussing the technology under a number of headings: the site mix process and the central mixing plant process. The crucial point lies in the stabilising of large areas. Reference is made to the development of cement stabilisation in Switzerland. The principal part of the article reports on the cement stabilisation of the second runway at Schwechat Airport, Vienna. The process used at Schwechat was economical for two reasons: the use of a Huther concrete mixing plant with an hourly performance of 400 t concrete and of a rotating laser instrument which transmitted the precise height data to a grader. The result of this rationalisation was that altogether 12 labourers, 1 push loader, 1 rubber tyred roller, 1 double vibration roller, 1 grader, 1 smooth wheel roller, 3 articulated dumpers and the mixing plant already referred to laid an average of 1600 cu metres of concrete. The required criteria were achieved or even exceeded. Important data: cement content 75 to 80 kg per cubic metre, crushing strength 80 to 130 kg/sq cm, procter compaction grade 100 or exceeding 100 percent. /TRRL/
